SIOUX CITY, IA (CBS St. Louis) – Earlier this month a truck carrying over 500 turkeys overturned killing all the birds.
Now the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals want the Iowa department of transportation to build a temporary memorial tombstone to honor all those turkeys.
According to the Iowa City Press-Citizen, Alex Moore wants to build a 10-foot structure to remember the turkeys,
Moore is a resident of Ankeny, Iowa, and a member of PETA. In his letter to Highway Division Director John Adam, Moore said he would like the tombstone to be up for a month to promote safe driving and a meat-free diet.
